For many wrestling fans, the WWE lost its sparkle around the time the superstars put away their Lycra trousers in favour of bad scripts and wooden acting (we're looking at you, The Rock).

It seems the makers of WWE '13 had the same feeling; much of the latest in the series focuses on the Attitude Era, with a retelling of the period through the eyes of eight of its biggest names, and scenarios such as Austin 3:16, Mankind and The Brothers of Destruction.

Twenty video packages and an off-script storyline focusing on the Smackdown era should delight most oldies, while the build on last year's WWE '12 will satisfy those who only remember Dwayne Johnson as a terrible film star.
